    Hi,

    We are going the last week of September, not sure yet what day will be our IOA day though!

    Our plan is to arrive well before rope drop (8:30ish?? :confused3)

    * Olivanders
    * Forbidden Journey (baby swap)
    * Hippogrif

    * Pterdon Flyers
    * Change into flip flops for water rides and bathing suit rashguards for the kids and board shorts.
    * Jurassic Park
    * Dudley
    * Bluto barges

    * Get kids back into normal clothes, likely we will bring a change of clothes for DH and I, but at least change back into runners

    * Spiderman
    * Spiderman meet and greet (must do DD is biggest fan ever)
    * Acceletron

    * Suessville

    Any suggestions or tweaks we should make?

    This sounds really good to me. If energy allows and the park is open late enough, you might want to walk back over to WWoHP in the evening too. If the lights come on, it's so pretty plus some of the lines die down. But hopefully late in September you won't have to worry much about lines.

    By the way, if the kids just want to play for a bit (depending on their age), there are great play areas too. There is one in Jurassic Park, there is Me Ship the Olive in the Toon area (we love to fire the water cannons at the people on the Bilge Rat Barges and stuff to explore and check out in Seuss. There is also a talking fountain that lures some kids like a magnet in the Lost Continent. That is all stuff that can be fun if it gets crowded or you just want to rest while the kids play.

    The other superheroes come out at regular times and do meet and greets too. If your DD likes Spidey she might get a kick out of Storm and Rogue. I know that I loved the female superheroes when I was a kid.

    Your plan looks OK just remember...the Pteranodon Flyers is a slow loading attraction and the lines will exceed 60 minutes most of the day. Depending on badly your family wants to ride it, you might want to consider doing that first thing and leaving WWoHP for later in the day. Otherwise...do WWoHP and just wait in line for the Pteranodon Flyers.

    How wet can you get on these rides? Splash Mountain wet or Kali River Rapids wet?
